Yeshivas Dira BeTachtonim - A Dwelling Place for G-d in the Lower Worlds
KINDNESS AND TRUTH
A YESHIVA WITH PRACTICAL TEACHINGSAND PRACTICAL LIFE VALUES
Amongst the many Mitzvah projects, Chessed Ve'Emet also includes a Yeshiva, located in Beitar Illit, open to all serious students of Torah. Shiurium are given in a wide variety of subjects, with a special emphasis on practical learning (Kashrus, Shabbos and Niddah) - and other areas in halachos discussed in Shulchan Aruch. One-on-one sessions are available with various rabbanim, to spend time learning the Sefer of your choice. We are hoping to have a Kollel allowing for Avreichim to learn at their own pace as well. In addition, acquiring and obtaining beautiful personality traits is emphasized throughout all the learning and activities in the Yeshiva.
A YESHIVA IN YOUR OWN HOME over the Internet
People wishing to learn at the Yeshiva, but who may be unable to be here in person in Beitar Illit, may also do so through the Internet by arranging with a rabbi, a mutually suitable time to get together and learn using such software as Skype - and others. The rabbi can turn on a webcam allowing for a virtually personal interaction. This gives students the opportunity to learn at their own pace, a book of their choice and at a time convenient to them, while having the "luxury" of learning in their own homes.
TEACH OTHERS TOO - AND GET PAID
As part of the curriculum, it is encouraged for students to also spend time sharing their own learning with others by teaching, whether in person at the Yeshiva - or using Internet facilities - as above. Students will receive payment for their teaching services if other students can be found around the world to teach in this way.
REVEALED AND HIDDEN TORAH - A HEALTHY DIET!
Both Nigleh- the revealed part of Torah, as well as Nistar - the hidden Torah (Chassidus and Kabbalah) are taught, and students can take part in those parts that appeal to them the most, whether in Chassidus Chabad, Chassidus Breslov, Sifrei Ramchal, Kitvei Arizal, Zohar etc.
LOCATION IS "EVERYTHING"!
The Yeshiva is still in it's beginning stages and is looking for a variety of people to come on board to take part in expanding it. We are working towards purchasing apartments in the *immediate* vicinity of the Yeshiva to allow for Bachurim, Avreichim and Rabbis to live, allowing them to be within immediate access of the Yeshiva and their homes. We do not as of yet have our own webpage - although this is being worked upon. We will also be in need of at least one person to manage this part of our Yeshiva on a daily basis, as we hope to have a full schedule of activities available on the site, including written Divrei Torah, audio lessons and an interactive chat section.
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT A Dwelling Place for G-d
We are looking for serious teachers, rabbis, students, fund raisers and financial supporters and contributors to expand the Yeshiva and make it truly into a Dira BeTachtonim - a dwelling place for G-d. Through this it will be a place which brings peace and happiness to all those learning in it, and from this, spread out these beautiful values to the rest of the world as well.
